Abstract—In order to suppress inter-symbol interference (ISI), the Frequency domain decision feedback equalization (FD-DFE) algorithm is proposed in this paper for single carrier frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE) combined with Alamouti space time block coding (STBC) systems over frequency-selective channels. We use the cyclic prefix (CP) and two transmit antennas to achieve the significant diversity gain. The feedback equalization part is designed by Mean Square Error (MSE) criterion and the coefficients of filters are all in the frequency domain for the given channel frequency response. The outage and diversity analysis of system is also made to measure the equalization performance. Finally, the simulation results show that the proposed algorithm has better performance than the conventional liner equalization (LE) and hybrid structure decision feedback equalization (HDFE) schemes, and the computational complexity of our method is acceptable.
